[One]: Live Colorfully has always been my motto when it comes to getting dressed every day. I love spreading a little sunshine wherever I may be. This outfit inspired me this week as I started to think about transition pieces for fall. Stripes are always such a classic piece and the pops of color help keep summer around just a tad bit longer. What has inspired you for fall, gal pals? I have been on the hunt for the perfect oversized open cardigan [preferably in Navy!] No such luck! I guess that just means this little lady will be on the hunt!
[Two]: This week I am thankful for phone calls with my mama. She lives so very far away from me and it often makes me feel a little lonely to be honest. I am so envious of other gals who have their mom's who live so close. I would love to just call my mom up to have her over for dinner or even to stop over and head out for a gal's day of shopping. Hopefully this long distance thing is not forever because I sure do miss her. For now, I will be thankful for phone calls and chit chats about silly things I did in my childhood that I may or may not remember.
[Three]: Just the other day I was thinking about my gal Jenna Lyons and wondering why she had been so hush-hush as of late. I hadn't seen her in the news or oozed over any new photos of her snazzy style. That is, until this week. Heaven's to Betsy! In case you Jenna fans were living under a rock, Into The Gloss featured an article with Jenna and her favorite beauty products. It's definitely worth a read if you have yet to catch up on the latest deets from the Queen herself. Oh what I wouldn't give to share a martini [or pint of Jeni's Salted Caramel] with the gal!
[Four]: Today at 7:00 my honeybee and I are hopping on a plane and heading to Chicago. We could not be more excited! I think I have been dreaming about sippin' on a cocktail or two at the airport bar for at least five days now [Not even kidding!]. Four days of bliss together with no responsibilities other than making serious decisions like where to stuff our faces and which shop to peruse through next. It is much needed and well deserved! If you follow me on Instagram, I apologize now because I may go a little crazy with my picture takings. Put a gal in a pretty city and she will get a little snap happy! Whoopsies!
[Five]: The start of the school year has been quite the change from my lazy summer day these past couple of months. I am now back to the 4:50 a.m. wake up calls and sometimes eleven hour work days. Yikes! Sometimes I feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. I am slowing trying to accept the fact that I just may not get it all done, my dears. At least I have my coffee to keep me company!
Happy Friday, chickadees! Do you have something snazzy planned for this weekend?
See you back here on Monday!
